The Hasselhoff clan might be have problems that are too big even for the skintight, red britches of Mitch Buchanan. Â The youngest daughter of David Hasselhoff (aka the notoriousÂ LotharioÂ ofÂ cheeseburgers) Hayley Hasselhoff, was formally charged with a DUI last month which makes her the third member of her immediate family who appears to suffer from alcohol problems.
As someone who has seen and experienced the effects of addiction and alcoholism with family members firsthand, I don’t think it’s appropriate or necessary to bring anyone down who suffers from an addiction. Â But I would also be remiss in my blogging duties if I didn’t remind everyone of 2007′s “Cheeseburger Heard Round The World,” either:
Pamela Bach, the estranged wife of David and mother to Hayley and sister Taylor,Â was arrested twice forÂ DUI in 2009Â and 2010, and wasÂ sentenced to 90 days in jailÂ and had to wear an ankle bracelet that detected the presence of alcohol in her system for six months.
Maybe the cancellation ofÂ The Hasselhoffs and Hayley’s ABC Family seriesÂ Huge has something to do with it. Â Maybe the fact that her parents can’t seem to get their shit together has something to do with it. Â Maybe the thought of one of your parents being a member of the cast ofÂ Baywatch is enough to drive anyone to drink. Â Whatever the reason behind the recklessness, I hope Hayley and the rest of her family gets the help they need to back off the booze.
In the meantime, if anyone seesÂ Knight Rider out on the open road, pleaseÂ avoid it at all costs.
Update: A representative of Hayley Hasselhoff contacted us to let us know she did not get a DUI.
